During his Saturday Night Live monologue last night, guest host Steve Carell was interrupted by his ‘The Office’ castmates Ellie Kemper, Jenna Fischer, and Ed Helms, asking for a re-boot of the show!
Ellie: People would really love to see an Office reboot. Especially me. ‘Cause I need that money. Let’s get that money, Steve!
Ed: I just don’t think you understand how much money we’re talking about. Like you wouldn’t have to do all those sad movies anymore.
Jenna: Do you remember the last words that Pam secretly whispered to Michael as she left for Denver? She said, “Steve, don’t be a dick. Do the reboot.”
Even Steve’s real-life wife, Nancy, got in on the act, gently prodding Steve with, “we don’t really need to you to hang around any more.”
Steve then asked the crowd, “Do you guys want to see an Office reboot? Is that what’s going on here?” to predictably thunderous applause.
He ended the monologue with, “I’m proud to announce officially that… we have a great show tonight! Ella May is here, so stick around, and we’ll be right back.”
Listening to the SNL band play out the segment with ‘The Office’ theme song seriously brought a tear to my eye.
Were any of you there? Was it like total pandemonium?
